Praise for Ladies' Night. Bestseller Andrews is at the top of her game, delivering a smart, funny perfect-for-summer read with a hopeful heart. --Publishers Weekly. A delightful novel about love, revenge and more love. The author provides a wonderful blend of action, repartee and offbeat characters in a just-plain-fun story. Humorous and witty, and as entertaining as a good night out. --Kirkus. Another engaging and satisfying tale of life, loss, and love.Booklist --Various

I am a fan of Mary Kay Andrews. You don't get too many surprises with her plot lines but the characters are always well drawn and I love the Southern backdrop with so many references to familiar places and things. A real treat when you are by the pool/on the beach.

Tepid, over done, and worn out theme 1 July 2013
By E. Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Apparently, I'll be one of the few reviewers who did not like this book. It took me several tries to finally get to the end, and I was relieved when I could delete it from my Kindle. Here's why I didn't enjoy it:

1. The tired theme of a very successful woman but who has no business sense at all and her husband is taking wild advantage of her. We've read this story 100s of times before, and with the number of lawyers and accountants in business today, plus the transparency of someone whose fame is on the Internet, it's hard to believe.
2. That someone would write a successful blog and not control her own passwords.
3. Layered on with a judge who is blatantly unfair, and involved in some dark activities.
4. And, of course, the heroine has to join a help group where first she is uncomfortable but then she learns about herself and of course finds true love.

This book is full of trite, well worn themes that have been done better by others. I'm sure my review will get all types of "not helpful" votes because the book is supposed to be about empowered women overcoming great odds and we should all support this, but to me, this book plays on reader's emotions and isn't worth reading.

A lot of sound and fury signifying nothing 20 Aug 2013
By VanillaMoon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Horrifically depressing.

Lifestyle blogger Grace leaves her McMansion the night she walks in on her husband and her assistant getting it on. Her husband then declares she's abandoned the marriage by leaving the house, locks her out of her gated community, and changes the passwords on her blog, which is how she earns a living for both of them. And so begins the saga of Grace Stanton Davenport and her journey into divorceland.

For the first half of the book, you're right there with Grace. OMG, he did what? What did he just say? Holy Crap! There's so much crap being dumped on Grace, occasionally literally, that you can barely stand it.

I think the worst part about this book is that there is no real payoff. And after a buildup like that, you REALLY need one. I'm a big fan of payoffs, if I'm going to spend time reading a story, I'd like there to be a satisfactory resolution at the end. This one is sorely lacking, which is just lame storytelling.

The women in Grace's court-ordered group therapy have stories ranging from irksome to tearjerker including life threatening illnesses directly caused by the cheating hubby. But there's no pay off. Not one of these men has to pay for the damage they've done to their ex-wives, in fact, the women get screwed in the marriage, screwed in the divorce, and on top of that have to pay exorbitant fees for their mandatory therapy in an illegal racketeering scheme cooked up by the judge and the pill popping therapist.

Grace tries to move on by starting a new blog, which is quickly hacked by her ex, then she attempts to restore an old Florida home to build up the reputation of her new blog, which never comes to fruition. I mean Grace will finish the house 'someday' but we, as the audience, never get to see her finish it or feel a sense of accomplishment. The blog never really takes off, either, by the time the story ends. So it's a lot of letdown. Nobody really gets what they deserve, good or bad, projects never get finished, storylines are just left a-hanging. Are Grace's fertility issues resolved? We'll never know because Andrews makes a big deal out of it throughout the book and then just forgets to mention it at the end.

And then Andrews sums it all up with a wedding that makes no sense because Grace and her new beau barely know each other and most of their 'relationship' consisted of, "Hey I'm not ready to go out with you." "That's okay. I'm not ready to go out with you, either."

So how can you go from not-ready-to-date to married in Zero-Point-Five seconds with psychotic exes and small children in the mix? Realistically you don't.

This book just didn't come through in the end and I felt like I wasted my time. There was potential there, but without a payoff it's just a bunch of women getting shafted THE END and who wants to read that?

This was my first, and last, Mary Kay Andrews. It just wasn't good enough to make me seek out her other books.

Another enjoyable read from Mary Kay Andrews 4 Jun 2013
By Sharon Redfern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
( Warning Paragraph 4 contains some spoilers) I started this book on audio and had to switch to the book because it was making me crazy that it was going so slow. Not the story, just listening to it. Once I got the actual book, I really enjoyed the story. My only quibble; for a smart person, the heroine was a bit of a doormat after she caught her hubby Ben "being assisted" by her assistant J'Aime. My aggravation level dropped once she got divorced and had to start rebuilding her life.
Grace loses everything, her husband, her blog, and her lifestyle after catching her hubby in the act and then destroying his car in a hissy fit (LOL). While she is licking her wounds, he is neatly taking everything away from her and even sabotaging her efforts to recoup her life. She ends up in a touchy feely anger management group with a bunch of other divorced people who had the misfortune of having their cases heard by the same judge. The best part of the story takes place from this point onward as Grace discovers a way to get her self-esteem and even her career back on track. I like that she realizes that she doesn't need all of the expensive and fashionable things which defined her life and even her blog before the divorce. Grace gets back to her essential self and rediscovers the joy in rehabbing a small vintage house not a mcmansion.
She meets Wyatt in her divorce group and they make a real connection after some false starts. He has also been taken for a ride by his ex, but he has a child involved, which makes it worse. The members of the group start to figure out that there is something fishy going on with their so-called therapist and the judge that heard their cases. The ways that the group investigates the situation add some real humor to the book. There are also parts that show just how toxic divorce can really be if the parties don't work hard to prevent that from happening even after the court hearing is over.
I have to say that Ms. Andrews is a nicer person than I am because I think that Ben and J'Aime don't suffer enough in the end. But, that is really the lesson that we learn in a divorce. I remember reading in a book something about the anger you keep in your heart leaving less room for love to come in. Grace learns that lesson and is the better person for learning it.
PS... Now that I have read the book, I am going to re-listen to it because the narrator really did a good job. It wasn't her fault that I was too impatient to wait and enjoy the book.

A disappointment - very unbelievable! 3 Sep 2013
By Nettie8008 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a fan of Mary Kay Andrews I have read all her books! I got this one anticipating the same but unfortunately - it was so unbelieveable it just made me mad. Your spouse cannot lock you out of a house you legally own, your personal possessions, a business or bank accounts with your name on them - it's against the law and there is no judge who would uphold that. I couldn't get past this beginning so couldn't read it. It just seemed kind of silly. I read the last few pages and put it down. Too bad. This one is just a miss.

Couldn't Put It Down 5 Jun 2013
By Christina Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Couldn't wait to purchase the latest book by Mary Kay Andrews as I had read the first two chapters as a teaser. MKA is so current and it shows through in Ladies Night! I love that it is set in Florida; finding it fun to relate to familiar sights and such. The plot is entertaining, the characters are fascinating, and I couldn't put it down. I read more than thirty chapters the first night and the plot is thickening. MKA you are an excellent writer...the way your characters seem weak, then fight back with a punch, and your spunk flow through this book. I'm always sad to end! Buy this book and you will not be disappointed!
